A quirt, or short riding whip, was historically used to urge a horse to greater speed or even used by warriors to "count coup." Now they are predominantly held during traditional dance. Our 19-1/2" Crow Style Sawtooth Dance Quirt with Broadcloth Wrap is made from mahogany hardwood and adorned with tackwork and a latigo or suede “whip” and buckskin wrist wrap.
Also available as a Northern Plains Dance Quirt. See related items below.
